Many students finish school and have absolutely no idea what they want to do. Some go out and get a job, some go traveling overseas and others enrol in a degree at TAFE or university and hope for the best.
The problem with this approach is that many students find they don’t enjoy their course and drop out in the first year or struggle through it until they can transfer to a new course. This can be disappointing and disheartening for both the parents and the student.
Vocational Assessment can assist your child with identifying what things they might be good at, what jobs they might be interested in based on the type of tasks they will carrying out on the daily basis and what are the job prospects for that career path.
The workshop is intended to assist your child with their senior subject selection, and their post-school career choices.
The workshop involves:
- An aptitude assessment covering six areas (non-verbal, verbal, numerical, clerical, mechanical and spatial reasoning) to help students establish where their strengths lie
- An occupational interest assessment to identify preferred vocational roles
- A personal style assessment which will give information about the kind of work focus and work environment most likely to suit the student
Following the assessment, an individual report of around 13 pages will be prepared for each child. The report details all test results and includes a list of career ideas for your child to explore, together with a workbook to aid this process.
